Mr Boszcyk’s medical training took place in Germany (Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich) with electives spent in South Africa (UCT) and USA (Duke). He was involved in the anatomical research of the spine since first years of medical school leading to a dedicated interest in the field of spinal disorders.
His postgraduate training was divided between Orthopaedic Surgery and Neurosurgery in centres with a focus on spinal surgery.
Mr Boszczyk has focussed exclusively on spinal surgery since 2003, with a dedication to complex reconstructive and revision procedures in adult deformity and tumours of the spine.
He has extensive experience in percutaneous vertebral augmentation (vertebroplasty/kyphoplasty) and spinal microsurgery, and in anterior surgery of the spine for reconstruction and disc replacement.
Mr Boszczyk sees and treats private patients at the Nottingham NHS Treatment Centre.
